Levi Johnson identified as teacher involved with student

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Great Falls Public School Board officially accepted Levi Johnson resignation at today's regularly scheduled board meeting.


UPDATE: Our Tarvarious Haywood worked this case for the past 2 days and everyone is keeping a tight lip when it comes to Levi Johnson.
We called over 10 law firms in the City of Great Falls to see about those possible charges but none of the law firms we spoke with was ready to talk.
KFBB reached out to a Helena attorney who said there is a slew of charges that Johnson could face but it all depends on the facts.

The principal and faculty for Great Falls High also tight-lipped as this investigation continues.
We did catch up with some student Tuesday on their way home from school and while none of them were willing to go on camera one student told us this is a surprise but says looking back the signs were there.

The victim in the case is a 17-year old whose name is not being released, but Tammy Lacey said the board is doing everything in their power to support them.

There has been no arrest at this time and KFBB will keep you updated with the latest information.


UPDATE: Cascade County Attorney Joshua Racki has confirmed that the teacher in question is Levi Johnson.

According to Johnson's Facebook page, he was born and raised in Great Falls. He also served as head coach of the Great Falls Chargers. 

While GFPS Superintendent Tammy Lacey did not identify Johnson in a press conference Monday afternoon, she did say the teacher in question has already resigned and is not allowed to have any contact with a GFPS student. 

An investigation is still underway and charges have not yet been filed. 


One Great Falls Public School Teacher has resigned after being accused of having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student.

Superintendent Tammy Lacey made the announcement at a press conference Monday afternoon, "We, of course, are shocked and mortified by this behavior," said Lacey.

The District first learned of the allegations on Friday, January 26th and immediately took action to remove the teacher from school grounds.  In addition, the teacher has been directed to not have any contact with any GFPS students.

Cascade County Attorney Josh Racki has confirmed with KFBB the teacher worked out of Great Falls High School and Lacey added there was substantial evidence against them.

The teacher in question submitted a letter of resignation which was immediately accepted and they are no longer allowed on any school property. 

"The board will take action at its February 12th Board to request the Board of Public Education to revoke the certificate of any teacher for immoral conduct related to the teaching profession," said Lacey

As for the student involved the superintendent says they are doing everything in their power to support them.

"Our kids, our community, and our future deserve the best and it's a sad day when one person compromised that.  Behavior like this is abhorrent and will not be tolerated," said Lacey.

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

You might not think it matters as long as it keeps those pesky mosquitoes away, but you might want to take a closer look at that bug spray bottle before you spray it on you or your kiddo's.  One of the biggest concerns when it comes to bug spray is if the chemical N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, more commonly known as ‘DEET’, is safe to use; especially on children. The good news is that you’re 100% in the clear. ...
